HAPESHI THANKS

This was the title of the banner that the APOEL supporters put up last Wednesday during the game after HAPESHIS cancelled a goal in the last minute that would have meant a loss to rivals Omonoia.

Now football and politics are intextricably linked in the politics of the Banana Republic. The following text message was circulating among the faithful by the next day:

TO PARASKINIO TOU FASISMOU EDRASE KSANA. APOFASIZOUN SAN GNISIOI APOGONOI TIS EOKA B'' PISO APO KLISTES PORTES PIOS THA INE O FETINOS PROTATHLITIS- OI MISISMENOI TOU APOEL. AS KSEKINISOUME TIN ANTISTASI MAS APO AVRIO PSIFIZONTAS OLOUS TOYS IPOPSIFIOUS TOY AKEL. APANTOUME ME ENOTITA!! (STILE TO SMS PANTOU)

Let me attempt a translation for the annals of history:

The underground of fascism has struck again. They are deciding for us, like the true descendants of EOKA B'', who will win this year's championship- those hated guys from APOEL. Let's begin our resistance as of tomorrow by voting for all the AKEL candidates. We react in, and with, unity! (Send the SMS everywhere)


Now in a mature country this would be a tasteful joke. In Stravaraland this might actually have meant the 2% increase in participation that Mavrou wanted to be elected mayor in Lefkosia! Absolutely amazing that people were actually forwarding this....

I object.

Picking teams, at least for a few people, takes place before picking parties. Maybe exceptions that are small in number but as an Omonoia fun that does not support AKEL, I have to register my disagreement with the previous comment!
